[Rumor] Gu Hye-sun and Seo Taiji in Love?Posted: April 28, 2011
Shortly after the revelation that Seo Taiji and Lee Jia were in fact married and divorced, soon rumors started spreading like wildfire that Seo Taiji and Gu Hye-sun are lovers. Not only that, but the story came out as they were settling their divorce so that Seo Taiji could officially announce his engagement to the young actress/director/author. What does Gu Hye-sun say about this?
She pretty much says “Mind your own business.”
On her personal Twitter account (@koohs) today, Gu Hye-sun left the message, “It seems like a story from a far away world.. I was in the position of staying quiet and praying. Things between them are for them only! So that they can have good closure. Let’s think about it, do we all have to help them through our feelings? It’s their lives. [We] have to recognize that it’s exclusively theirs.”
This kind of message certainly doesn’t put Gu Hye-sun out of the rumor mill, but instead a representative made a statement about the Seo Taiji-Gu Hye-sun love story, “Gu Hye-sun has been training from a very young age, so she couldn’t have known Seo Taiji [well]. It’s just a hot story. It’s a complete rumor that feels too ridiculous to even mention.”
The rumors followed this kind of logic: The story about Seo Taiji’s divorce came out now because Seo Taiji is having some kind of woman problems. Woman problems = Seo Taiji is seeing someone. He also is building a huge house these days, a house to share with a family? Upset, Lee Jia filed a suit over property. It was said that YG introduced Seo Taiji to a female fan in 2004, when he returned to Korea, and that fan was Gu Hye-sun. It was stated that in an unreleased 2008 interview, Gu Hye-sun mention the K-pop idol, “Following Seo Taiji, I want to go to Buk-gong High School,” but YG Entertainment completely denies this as a fabricated interview.
If this rumor is true, then it implies that Gu Hye-sun is why Seo Taiji and Lee Jia broke up, which would explain Lee Jia’s actions. Netizens are trying to dig up more evidence on the couple, but POPSEOUL thinks they should listen to Miss Gu and mind their own business.
Lee Jia and Seo Taiji were married in 1997, in America. Lee Jia filed for divorce officially in 2006.
